ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Minnesota Rep. House.
"The district is changing," the Democrat said in an interview Wednesday with KARE TV in Minneapolis. "They want somebody who really does have some business background and understands the economy and can get things done in Washington and back in the district."
Bachmann, a vocal opponent of the Obama administration, promised her supporters, "I will continue to work overtime for the next 18 months in Congress defending the same Constitutional Conservative values we have worked so hard on together."

Bachmann had given few clues she was considering leaving Congress. Her fundraising operation was churning out the regular pitches for Bottega Veneta Small Zip Hobo Bag the small dollar donations that Bachmann corralled so well over the years, and she had an ad running on Twin Cities television talking about her role in opposing President Barack Obama's health law.
Bachmann also said, "This decision was not impacted in any way by the recent inquiries into the activities of my former presidential campaign." In January, a former Bachmann aide filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission, claiming the candidate made improper payments to an Iowa state senator who was the state chairman of her 2012 presidential run. The aide, Peter Waldron, also accused Bachmann of other FEC violations.
As for her plans beyond Congress, she said, "There is no future option or opportunity, be it directly in the political arena or otherwise, that I won't be giving serious consideration if it can help save and protect our great nation."
elected," Bachmann said. She narrowly won a fourth term in 2012 over Democrat Jim Graves, a hotel chain founder who is running again in 2014.
Michele Bachmann says she won't run for another House term
Without the polarizing Bachmann on the ticket, Republicans could have an easier time holding a district that leans more heavily in the GOP direction than any other in Minnesota.
Bachmann announced her decision in a video on her website.
thing to be in Congress. It's a grueling thing to be Michele Bachmann in Congress," he said. "Every move you make is criticized and put under a microscope."
But the failed presidential campaign continued to dog her. Allegations of improper payments prompted ethics inquiries. Bachmann also faced a lawsuit from a former aide that alleged someone on the congresswoman's team stole a private e mail list of home school supporters for use in the campaign. That case is pending.
Andy Aplikowski, who has long been active in the district's Republican Party chapter, said he expected Bachmann to run again but can understand why she didn't.
Graves said he thought Bachmann had "read the tea leaves."

The White House bid got off to a promising start, with a win in an Iowa GOP test vote. But Bachmann quickly faded and finished last when the real voting started in Iowa's leadoff caucuses, a result that caused her to drop out. Saddled with debt, Bachmann opted to campaign again for her seat and squeaked through.
Bachmann has been mentioned as a potential challenger to first term Democratic Sen. Al Franken, but she has given little indication that she would take that step.
Bachmann won the seat in 2006 on the strength of a social and fiscal conservative coalition. She catapulted onto the national scene with edgy comments and frequent cable television appearances, including one where she suggested then candidate Obama may have harbored "anti American views." Her profile shot up even more with the rise of the tea party, whose agenda she heartily championed in Congress much before other Republicans saw the movement's political potential. She tried to harness the tea party energy with her presidential campaign in 2012.
